Pamela Sue Martin made her first television appearance
in the made-for-television movie The
Girls of Hunting House. Over the next couple of years she
would spend her time making both theatrical films as well as made-for-TV
fare. In the late 70s she hit pay dirt with the role of Nancy Drew
in the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boy Mysteries. She would stay with
the show only two season before quitting over disappointment in
the direction of the show.
In the later part of the 1970's Pamela Sue would continue to made
made-for-television movies and then would reach her height of television
fame when she accepted the role as Fallon Carrington Colby on the
nighttime soap Dynasty. Produced by Aaron Spelling, Dynasty
would soon become one of the top rated series in the 1980s. During
this time she would also make several guest appearance on other
Aaron Spelling programs, and appear in several mini-series. Again
disappointed with Hollywood and all it's trappings, she would quit
Dynasty after only four seasons.
For most of the following decade she would be absent from our television
screens making a guest appearance every now and then. In February
2002 she would make a guest appearance on That 70's Show
playing the Wizard in a spoof of The Wizard of Oz.
